UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Faculty and graduate student judges are needed for the 2014 Undergraduate Exhibition Wednesday, April 9. The exhibition is held at the University Park campus and open to undergraduate students from all Penn State locations. Judges play an important role in the event, providing entrants the opportunity to present and discuss their work.
Poster judging will be held in the HUB-Robeson Center on April 9. Judges choose the times and broad area(s) of entry for judging. Judging categories include arts and humanities, engineering, health and life sciences, physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and course-based projects. Each judging session spans a 90-minute period (9:30-11 a.m., 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and 12:30-2 p.m.) in which each judge is given approximately three posters to review. Most judges find that a total of about 45 minutes is required to complete the judging. The students will be available through the 90-minute session so judging can take place at any time during that period. A judge need not stay the entire 90 minutes.
Individuals willing to serve as a judge should complete the Judge Volunteer Form and submit the form electronically. The Office of Undergraduate Education will confirm by email that the judge volunteer form was received successfully.
Judges will be contacted by the Office of Undergraduate Education during the first week of April with judging times and procedures, and poster assignments and abstracts. Information about the Undergraduate Exhibition can be found at www.undergradresearch.psu.edu.
Questions may be directed to Mary Beth Crowe, assistant vice president and assistant dean for undergraduate education, at 814-863-1864 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
